Storyline

Based on the true story of Louisa Gould, the drama is set during World War II on the Nazi-occupied island of Jersey. Lou took in an escaped Russian POW and hid him over the war's course. The tension mounts as it becomes clear that Churchill will not risk an assault to recapture the British soil, and the island-community spirit begins to fray under pressures of hunger, occupation and divided loyalty. Against this backdrop, Lou fights to preserve her family's sense of humanity and to protect the Russian boy as if he was her own. Written by Anonymous

POWERFUL DRAMA
9 August 2019 | by grahamvrSee all my reviews

As the end credits say, a dramatisation based on true events. A truly powerful and amazing story of a woman who gave everything to save another woman's son. How other reviewers here can say it is boring, wooden performances etc, etc is beyond me. The actors portrayed exactly what people were like back then. I had many relatives who went through WWII, some died and some survived the atrocities. I congratulate all involved in this production and for getting it made on such a low budget. It is one of the best WWII dramas I have ever seen. Excellent dialogue and the pace was just right. For those of you who didn't like it all I can say is I hope you never have to live through such atrocities as those people did. When we have a nuclear war, which is eminent, you will truly see the truth.
